ST ANDREW'S, GRAFHAM

St Andrew's, Grafham is a beautiful country church, designed, built and lavishly decorated by 
Henry Woodyer. Although we are a small congregation we love God, we love our church 
and we try to love and serve our neighbours.

Our weekly worship on Sundays at 11.15am  is from the Book of Common Prayer, compiled in the sixteenth century by Thomas Cranmer, and modified in 1662. Our services, of either Holy Communion or Mattins (Morning Prayer) have been familiar to generations of Christians for the wonderful language - dignified and memorable phrases that speak so clearly to our human condition.

We very much look forward to meeting you.

September evening

When coming to St Andrews you can always be assured of a very warm welcome. A welcome to those from all walks of life; the young, the elderly, the rich and poor, a welcome to those over 60 but not grown up yet, and a welcome to children and teenagers growing up too fast!

The beautiful Chancel in St Andrew's Church

 It has been an unusually busy time for the first and darkest month of the year.  The warmer periods have persuaded the snow drops to make an appearance bringing a promise of brighter things to come in the church yard and hopefully for all of us.

An impressive number of parishioners attended the Acorn interviews in the middle of January from both churches which, to my mind, implies an all round wish to try to understand each others’ point of view and move on hand in hand.

I hope that those from Holy Trinity who attended some of St Andrew’s services had felt as welcomed and included as those who attended Bramley from Grafham.  I have always understood there to be a mutual welcome between the two churches within the Benefice and that in the overall scheme of things it’s the number of parishioners through the doors that is important rather than where they worshipped.

For all you gardening enthusiasts please remember the talk to be kindly given by Graham Titchmarsh on 16th March.  More details are below.
